Seeding is slowly progressing in southwest Manitoba.
In its weekly crop report, Manitoba Agriculture is pegging seeding progress in the southwest at about 30 to 35 per cent complete.
About 40 to 50 per cent of the spring wheat and field peas are planted and about 20 to 30 per cent of the canola is in the ground.
Some flax and corn is also planted, but the percentage done is low.
Approximately 10 to 15 per cent of the soybean acres are planted, while barley and oats are close to 40 to 45 per cent planted.
A few sunflower acres are also in the ground.
Early seeded cereals are emerging slowly due to moderate soil temperatures and colder nights.
There are reports of some water stressed fields in the southwest corner of the province.
Seeding progress across the province is estimated at 50 to 60 per cent complete.
